"Unless" as written by Thomas Edward Yorke, Mauro Refosco, Nigel Godrich, Michael Peter Balzary and Joey Waronker....
Careless
I couldn't care less
Careless
I couldn't care less
Careless
I couldn't care less
Such a mess
I know it's useless

I couldn't care less
Careless
I couldn't care less

While my heart keeps returning
I am lost, I am weightless
With my arms by my side
I am hope, I can break this
I am rust, I am waiting
I am here, I am weightless
I am rust, rust,
Rust
Rust

Careless
I couldn't care less
Careless
I know it's useless
I couldn't care less
Careless
I know it's useless
Careless
Couldn't care less
I know it's you, I guess
Couldn't care less

    General CommentActual lyrics:

    Care less
    I couldn't care less
    Care less
    I couldn't care less
    Care less
    I couldn't care less
    Such a mess

    I know it's useless
    I couldn't care less
    Care less
    I couldn't care less

    While my heart keeps returning
    I am lost, I am weightless
    With no arms by my side
    I am hope, I can break this
    I am rust, I am waiting
    I am here, I am weightless
    I am rust, rust

    Care a less
    I couldn't care a less
    Care a less
    I know it's useless
    I couldn't care less
    Care less
    I know it's useless
    Care less
    Couldn't care less
    I know it's you, I guess
    Couldn't care less

    General CommentI think its trying to convince yourself that you are ok with a lost lover, with the bridge of the song as the inner monologue. Both the outer face and the inner monologue ultimately fail, as the outer face ends both parts off focus from the "careless" message and the inner monologue goes from proclaiming "weightless" i.e. freedom from their problems to just stating they are rust (also as the song itself breaks down)

    General Comment"Me thinks thou dost protest too much."

    Yes, he cares but doesn't want to admit it. Time is passing and he's still waiting for a change to happen.

    General CommentUnless..... what? Sounds like someone trying to talk themselves out of an obsession, "I couldn't care less.."
